Clearwater Honored with 2010 BoatUS Recreational Boating Access Award

CLEARWATER, Fla. – The city’s downtown boat slip project, recently renamed Clearwater Harbor Marina, is honored to have received a 2010 BoatUS Recreational Boating Access Award. The award is made in recognition of the city’s ability to bring much needed boating access to Clearwater, that includes 126 permanent slips, more than 1,500 feet of side-tie docks for overnight stays and 650 feet of free “side-tie” dockage for day use.

BoatUS (Boat Owners Association of the United States) created the award program in 2007 to highlight successes in protecting water access as boaters and communities were losing marina slips, service yards and boat launching areas. The goal is to draw national attention to innovative solutions and share success stories so that others may help to solve their own waterway access challenges.

BoatUS is the nation’s leading advocate for recreational boaters providing more than half a million members with government representation, programs and money-saving services.
